Quotes - Santa Clara at Stanford
Kerry Keating, on game: "The most notable thing from tonight's game is the rebounding margin. We were clear with the team that if we were going to have a chance, we needed to out-rebound them. We had not been out-rebounded all season until tonight. When you lose the rebounding battle 40-23, it is hard to overcome."
Keating, on team's foundation: "We are trying to build a strong foundation for this season and for the future. As a team, we have to be prepared to play games like this now and hopefully in later years in March. Every game is a learning process and we will continue to learn all season and get better now and for the future. As we keep learning, we will perform better in games like tonight."
Keating, on team's game plan: "Our goal was to get the ball in the paint and we were able to do that. We did not convert on a lot of those opportunities down low and that hurt us. With the Lopez twins in there, it makes it difficult to score down low."
